How To: Create cross project work item queries in Team Foundation Server

We’ve been running the release version of Team Foundation Server internally at Readify for around two months now but today we finally opened up access to the facility to all staff today after getting the license key to upgrade from the workgroup edition to the full build (remind me to tell you how fun that experience was over a beer one day).

As one of the champions for TFS in the organisation I want to ensure that people use it effectively and that means sharing little tips and tricks. Because our TFS implementation already has a variety of active Team Projects it could become difficult for people to keep track of work items that are assigned to them across all the projects. So this evening I published a video to an internal training site which shows how to create a work item query that spans team projects (video) and I thought I would share it with everyone.

In the video I mention Personal Workspaces (a process template) which we are creating for everyone, if you are interested you can grab it here.

    Hi there,

    Unfortunately I don’t have access to the video anymore. However creating a cross project query really just involves removing the team project constraint from the query grid.
